(The article written by Victor Flowers)

I was watching Paula Deen again on the satellite TV I got from directstartv, and this time around she was making a recipe I found quite gross at first: Brussels sprouts and Bacon. I was watching Mrs. Deen cook this with my husband, who happens to be a fan of Brussels sprouts, and he asked me if I would be willing to try and make it. I agreed, but on the condition that he had to clean up the mess afterward!

The ingredients seemed simple enough: bacon, onion, garlic, Brussels sprouts, pepper, chicken broth, and butter. I had to fry the bacon, easy enough, then saute the onion and garlic in the grease left over, then add the sprouts. Once they were mixed in it with the broth, it all had to cook for about 20 minutes.

When I tried the quick meal, I found myself surprised at how flavorful it was. The sprouts were delicate, and the bacon added just the right amount of meaty flavor to the broth. My husband loved it, and as promised, he cleaned up the mess I made in the kitchen, and with a smile on his face! I plan on making this recipe again for holiday meals, and I hope these sprouts will be a hit with other people too!
